I'm heading up on Saturday morning. Anyone have anything to report? Depths, locations, catches, tactics, ice conditions. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Reports vary: Anywhere from 5-8inches of ice. Atv and snowmobile travel is going good. There have been reports of walleyes going good on the shallow rocks and weeds. Not much perch action yet until we can get out to deeper water.

minnphats and I had a pretty good day on the lake. Caught one 'eye under the slot and two over the slot. One was approx 21"-22", the other somewhere between 27" and 28". Saddly to say we forgot the tape measure and the camera, but two quality walleyes were landed. The 21" or so came in about 17' of water, the large one came in about 6' of water. I got a approx 22"or 24" pike in 6' about 50 feet from where minnphats caught the big 'un. Had another fish snap my line when I set the hook. Toothy northern? Who knows... Also caught some anit-jumbo perch in 17'. We fished right out of Dickies for those who are interested.

      Thanks to Wanderer (Tracy) for extracting me from a sticky situation 🤦‍♂️. It was also nice to finally meet you in person!! I think you need to start a weekend towing business lol. I had a buddy of mine and his dad come out and check and make sure I was okay after you left. Fishing was pretty good I got 8 gills all around 8” and 1 crappie 9”. Dad came out and got 5 gills. We stayed till 6:15pm and I was able to make it off the lake no problem.

      Cliff and Byron are planning a Kids ice fishing day February 12. The event is out of Fortune bay Marina  9-1. The event is for Tower and Nett lake kids. I know Cliff is looking for a few helpers.

      Cuz that’s just me.  🙂  I just like tinkering and seeing what I can get away with - and learn about things.   Just got done with a fine hone stone and got out some small nicks I’m pretty sure I got from cutting dirty ice in ND.  I’ll find out tomorrow how I did.

      Like @eyeguy 54 says, Frank has been the go-to guy for members of this site for years.  He does it by mail and is in Saginaw, MN.   It’s interesting that you ask about re-shaping also.  I know Frank has the Nils jig and the drill blades are curved.  I was considering tuning up my own today before they get too dull but am concerned about maintaining the shape of the curve. Since I was a machinist in a former life, I’m still gonna try it.  Then maybe send to Frank. 😀
